A Note On A Problem Of Abramovich, Aliprantis And Burkinshaw
MetadataShow full item record
Let B and T be two positive operators on a Banach lattice such that B is compact-friendly and T is locally quasi-nilpotent. Introducing the concept of positive quasi-similarity, we prove that T has a non-trivial closed invariant subspace provided B is positively quasi-similar to T. This gives an affirmative answer to a problem of Abramovich, Aliprantis and Burkinshaw with the commutativity condition replaced by the positive quasi-similarity of the corresponding operators. The notion of strong compact-friendliness is also introduced and relevant facts about it are discussed.
